Live As Servants of God

One of the things I have come to appreciate about our study from Peter is the very simple statements that he makes.  Simple but full of meaning.  For example…

Honor all men…

Love the brotherhood…

Fear God…                             1 Peter 2:17

One I really like is 1 Peter 2:16: Live as servants of God.

The books of 1 & 2 Peter are books about how we live. Live as servants of God, says a lot.  In everything I do, live as if I am serving God.

Peter also said, Maintain good conduct among the Gentiles.  How often have we heard, Behave yourself?  Peter goes on to say to live in such a away that even the Gentiles, who are not known for righteous living have nothing bad to say about you.

Peter talks about the way the used to live in 1 Peter 4.  They used to live like Gentiles, a life without license.  Now he says it is time to live like Christians.

How do you live like a Christian?  The best way is to live as a servant of God!  Live in a way that God would be proud of you.
